JULY 13 – CHOSEN

7/13 John 15:16-17
You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. 17 I command you to love each other.
CHOSEN
Being chosen is a paradox that we struggle with. Jesus is looking for us. He would that no one die and go out into eternity separated from the Father. But we also have freewill and we must choose Him. Amazingly when we choose Him we are chosen as a child of God. I do not understand this nor can I adequately explain it but I know that Jesus loves me and He is seeking you.
